Isolationism

Arguments on expansion of NATO are ridiculous. The question is why should NATO continue? The European Union is attempting to become a rival to Pax America. So what is the compelling interest for America to finance this competing interest? It is prudent to pay for the systemic destruction of nukes from the Russia arsenal. But why should the US pay for defending Germany when the only threat for a new Reich is the advent of a NATO run by the EU? Just who is the lamebrain, and who doesn't learn?

Revisit the Planet of the Apes

A planet ruled by animals, not humans! How could such a world be and would it be any better? Certainly, such a question would be preposterous if answered: how could it be any worse . . . at least that response would be seen as cynical by most inhabitants. Hasn’t the human species developed this globe and accomplished achievements that only intelligent life can understand and appreciate? Maybe so, from a technological feat; but what about the social component?

Woman of the Year, or is it?

The game of presidential politics is often described as musical chairs.  Actually it is more like “Pop Goes the Weasel”.  Since national elections have proved to be irrelevant, tweedledum and tweedledee charades, what’s the point in getting worked up over the next cycle?  Well adjusted minds know that the next presidency will just be another administration that wastes the country.  Another ‘Croissant Kerry’ run would drive the electorate to riot.  A McCain march will never get fundamental troops to get in line.  What will the parties on both sides of the same coin do?  When in doubt call in the consultants and pollsters.

The 'Hundred Days' of Reform Demur

Almost a half century ago a time of relative tranquillity was characterized with long afternoons on the golf course. The kindly looking father figure possessed enormous support from his nation. Prosperity was expanding, families enjoyed each other and the era was known as a 'Golden Age'. He was called 'Ike' and America knew her own identity. An atmosphere of innocence and self esteem was proudly worn, and people did not fear to express their pride in the country. Government was relatively small, and roads for commerce attracted their attention. It seems to be a description from another planet, not just several decades ago. Then why does George the younger, convey a sense of dejavu?

Outsourcing, Nation Building and Open Borders

Three pillars weaken a collapsing foundation for a viable self-sufficient society.  Each targets the destruction of self-rule and sovereignty.  Each amplifies on the disintegration of the other.  And each is interconnected in a much broader strategy to destroy self-determination, freedom and national security.

Outsourcing has been part of the globalist scheme for decades.  Sold under the misnomer of Free Trade the real intent is to drain a domestic self-sustaining economy from internal independence.  The stark reality of exporting living wage jobs and laying waste to crucial industrialized segments of an effective economy benefits only the transnational corporatoracy.  The lust for cheap labor drives every possible job overseas.  Real wage purchasing power sinks with each decade.  Replacement employment in new-fangled ventures and fields seldom provide a compatible level of inflationary adjusted remuneration.

Homeland Security in the Land of the Free

The horror stories about the Transportation Security Administration are indisputable. In the post 911 environment, civil liberties routinely ignored or eliminated, become a mere memory in a country that once prided itself as the beacon of freedom for the entire world. The TSA is part of the Department of Homeland Security. FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is also an agency of DHS. The public relation spin for the purpose of such authorities is to protect citizens and guard the nation. The reality is that DHS bureaus have the same mission, keep the government safe from potential real or imaginary threats. Interpret threats to mean anyone who opposes the establishment regime, now known as, the military-industrial-financial-security complex.

Supreme Court Protects the State

The highest court in the land operates with one purpose - Preserving the Protection Racket. The idea that the U.S. Constitution means what it says and that the Bill of Rights has the categorical purpose of safekeeping individual rights, is ignored by the black ropes. Little attention has been given in the media to the refusal of the court to hear and rule on Silveira v. Lockyer, 312 F3d 1052 (9th Cir. 2002) a Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision that the Second Amendment affords Americans no personal right to own firearms. By declining to take up this review, the Supreme Court ruled as every court has with their silence, since 1939.

AMA = Asinine Meddling Agitators

The new president of the American Medical Association, Dr. Richard F. Corlin from Santa Monica, California has a pet peeve. His proposal for a study into firearm injuries is nothing more than an assault upon guns themselves. It seems the good doctor wants data on the subject so that a review can be made to set AMA policy against gun violence. Well who would oppose reducing gun related injuries and deaths, but with the recent history of this esteemed group of physicians, it seems that this president is siding with 'Doctors Against Handgun Injury'.

“Clear Thinking” Counterfeit Conservatives

Propaganda has become the normal diet for what passes as today’s popular political discourse. Facts now have pliable reality, as language is twisted to fit the circumstance. Linguistic analysis is practiced with a purity of the social relativist. Timeless standards, once unassailable and founded in inimitable certainty, are routinely discarded for the flavor of the day truth, as the situation demands. The hijacking and insidious appropriation of the monogram - CONSERVATIVE - its authentic philosophy, tradition and meaning, is systemically betrayed. At the core of the phony falsifiers is the conduct to deceive, with the motive to control and rule.

Abandonment

Adherents of principle are not proponents of 'popular culture'. When you justify 'situations ethics', you become a 'matron of genocide'. That is the ultimate 'PC' creed, which you so readily profess. Destroy life whenever and wherever you find it; especially when it seeks and holds sacred values.

The march into internment advances

The past year 2004 started off as a time to go fishing and ends in a tsunami wave of calamity. The relief efforts are portrayed as assistance after the effect of a natural disaster, but the real story for the year is the onslaught of refugee  camps of a very different kind. The condition of the globe is much more at risk from political discord than from an environmental catastrophe. If the planet can rally to aid the suffering from the wrath of mother nature, why is it virtually impossible to resolve the differences from man made conflicts?

An Election Ordained in Hell

Digesting the results from a Diebold voting count is like holding your breath while drowning in a pool of your own blood. You hope the statistics will provide optimism, while you know that you are expiring from the loss of your own vital fluid. Pundits are quick on the draw to report rumors and dispense disinformation from exit polls. Party operatives talk the game, while the hacks work the counting machines. The red areas spread as the blues befall the loss from a fickle suitor. -
